About the Conference

MAIN SE CONFERENCE

The Main Social Enterprise (SE) Conference is Peace and Equity Foundation's (PEF) largest gathering for 2014. It will bring together relevant leaders, experts, and practitioners to discuss how social enterprises can be competitive, resilient, and able to drive inclusive growth.

YOUTH SE CONFERENCE
November 28, 2014 (by invitation)


We in PEF believe that the creativity and enthusiasm young people possess can be channeled to create social impact and drive positive change through business innovations. 

With this, the Youth Social Enterprise Conference is organized to bring together young minds and introduce to them social entrepreneurship as a strategy to do business with social impact. The conference will acquaint attendees on the difference facets of social entrepreneurship through powerful talks and mentoring sessions from experts, both from SE practitioners, NGOs and from the government. The sessions will focus on enterprise building, product development, technology use, business compliance, and impact investing. 

Aspiring entrepreneurs and young social innovators are invited to join this gathering. It is going to be a day full of learning and sharing with the end goal of the youth taking full grasp of their ability to change the world, one social entrepreneurial step at a time.
